Summer Term – Cycle 4

The children in Nursery have worked extremely hard during Cycle 3. We really enjoyed our trip to the farm and loved petting and feeding all of the animals. We have just started Cycle 4 and are excited about all the learning that will take place.

Reading

  • Our Key Text for Cycle Three is ‘On Sudden Hill’. We will be reading the story each week, answering blank level questions, learning about the characters, sequencing the story and bringing the story to life through role play.

Birt and Etho are best friends, they play on Sudden Hill, making marvellous contraptions out of cardboard boxes. But then a new boy, Shu, wants to join in too. Birt isn’t sure that he wants Shu to join them. Eaten up with jealousy, he goes home and refuses to come out to play. Until Etho and Shu come to his house with the most marvellous cardboard contraption so far…

  • Please continue to listen to your child read their reading book every night. Ask your children questions about their book to check their understanding of what they have read. Remember to bring your child’s book in every Friday to be changed.

Writing

We are continuing to work hard to write our names in the morning. Some of us are now learning how to write our surnames. In RWI lessons we are learning sounds. We are beginning to learn how to segment individual sounds in order to blend them to read simple words.

Maths

In Maths we are working very hard on counting out a number of objects from a larger group, one more than and practical addition. We are continuing to learn the names of 2D and 3D shapes.

Chicks

During this cycle we will be having some special visitors in Nursery. We will be receiving a set of eggs which we will be able to see hatch into chicks. Very exciting! The children will learn about the life cycle of a chicken and will have the opportunity to draw and write about the chicks and maybe even hold a chick!

Snack Money

We ask that the children continue to bring in 50p every week, on a Monday, to contribute towards the cost of providing the children with a range of healthy snacks.

Attendance

Please be reminded that the school doors open at 8:50am and the register and maths lessons commence at 9am prompt.  It is important your child arrives to school on time to ensure valuable learning is not missed.

Weather

Please ensure your child has spare clothes and underwear as there may be times when your child gets wet during outdoor play.

Clothing

Please ensure all clothing is labelled clearly with your child’s name. We are still noticing a number of jumpers and cardigans with no name.

We operate an open door policy, therefore please feel free to come in and speak to me about any worries or concerns you may have about your child or your child’s learning. If you would like a more in depth discussion, we can arrange a mutually convenient time and date.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Harvey and the Nursery team.

Nursery Update

Our topic this term is ‘Transport’. Your topic homework is to make a vehicle that can do something special using things you have at home, such as cardboard boxes, tubes, bottles, milk tops etc. It may be a ‘flying bus’, a ‘robot boat’ or a ‘dinosaur car’. Talk to your child about what they are learning and discuss what special vehicle they might like to create. Please bring your finished model clearly labelled with your name into school on Monday 21st November to show Miss Harvey, Mrs Singh and the other children. We can’t wait to see all of your fantastic creations!

Communication and Language

In our Communication and Language groups we have been learning all about different types of ‘Transport’. We have been exploring the story ‘The Naughty Bus’. One day we had a surprise delivery, it was a present for us to unwrap. It was our very own ‘Naughty Bus’, he has been getting up to all sorts of mischief in the classroom, we have found the Naughty Bus in lots of weird and wonderful places.

Maths

In maths we are working on reciting numbers in order, recognising numerals and 1:1 counting.

Phonics

In phonics we have been going on listening walks in our school environment to tune into sounds all around us. We have been learning to play different musical instruments and have been exploring different ways to play them. We have enjoyed learning an African chant ‘Kye Kye Kule’ along with actions.

Things to remember:

Spare clothes

Please ensure your child has spare clothes with them in school at all times, including underwear and socks. It is very important that we are able to change your child and make them comfortable if any toileting accidents occur and especially now as we’re approaching the winter months.

Weather
As the weather is getting colder, please ensure children wear suitable clothing, i.e. a warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves. Please ensure children’s items are clearly labelled.

We operate an open door policy, therefore please feel free to come in and speak to me about any worries or concerns you may have about your child or your child’s learning. If you would like a more in depth discussion, we can arrange a mutually convenient time and date.
